The indomitable Mystified has teamed up with some artists of his acquaintance to assemble this mix of unusual ambient works, based around a series of samples generated by programs that convert fractal information into sound files.
"The pieces originated from fractal midi. "High Sun" is a fractal piece converted to .wav with very little interpretation. The piece was created using the program "Gingerbread". The other pieces were derived from a fractal midi piece I created in the late nineties called "Circlslo Pan". I used the geometry of a circle as a sort of seed for fractal generation, then created a larger midi file fractally using a program called "SoftStep" by Algo Arts. Participating artists were asked to render this midi in what way they chose, from more direct midi to mp3 renderings to actual re-interpretations (such as in the Orange County remix).
"Sphereslo Pan [mixes]: Using the geometry of a sphere and SoftStep fractal synthesis, midi was created and then converted into wav form.
Dandelion Fast Pan Short: This is a snippet of a piece created using the blooming fequency of a patch of dandelions.
QFive and QSix: These 2 pieces were created using Paul Whalley's QMuse quasi-fractal generating software."
